I’m hoping to generate a discussion about the 4 Bg5 Pirc, a sharp and complicated variation which (along with its treatment in books) I’ve often found confusing!
Here’s my own thinking to date. A...

Move Order Issue in Marin's Pirc DVD?
So, Marin recommends 1 e4 d6 2 d4 Nf6 3 Nc3 g6 4 Be3 Bg7 5 Qd2 0-0, and consequently, 4 Bg5 Bg7 5 Qd2 0-0, which is liable to transpose following Bh6.

6. e5 Austrian Attack -- Black can easily equalize
It seems that with 8... Nxc3 Black can easily equalize against White's 6. e5 in the Austrian attack. Does White have anything in this line that I am missing?

Pirc Classical 6...Nc6 7.d5 Ne5!? [B08]
I was just checking the March update from IM Sam Collins where he states that white has next to nothing in the opening.

Now I wonder if he talks about 9.Bg5 which I analyzed heavily last year. It looks to me as a nice try for some advantage although I admit things can quickly become extremely complicated.
